Poop problems need help
streets44241 posted:
Hi i am male 33 years old. whenever i poop there is a flap of skin or muscle trying to come out of my anus. this happens only when i try to force the poop out. it retracts in when i touch it or when i start cleaning my anus, because of this i always having a feeling that my bowl is not completely empty. this just started 3 or 4 months ago.
georgiagail responded:
This sounds like a hemorrhoid issue.

streets44241 replied to georgiagail's response:
But it does not hurt me in any way. I am guessing that the hemorrhoid hurt during the excretion process.
georgiagail replied to streets44241's response:
No, a hemorrhoid does not have to hurt. A hemorrhoid is simply just an blood vessel that is enlarged and pushed out of the anus with the force of pushing during the straining of a bowel movement. It does not have to either hurt or bleed.

You should go to the doctor and get it checked out.
